    I put an AA revenue ticket on hold for 24 hours, then bought the ticket right as the 24 hours ended. Do I have another 24 hours to refund or make fee-free changes to the ticket?

I think the rule is they either have to allow you to hold it 24 hours for free or let you make changes/cancel after 24 hours for free but it’s up to the airline to decide which to do. AA chooses to allow the hold so I don’t think you can then change/cancel within 24 hours without penalty.

    But someone please correct me if I’m wrong.
